Uggghhhh I hate this itchy, red, and now dry/flaky skin! My skin feels so rough and hard. But this is reported to be expected so I have to keep it up. It's been 5 days of using Dan's regimen and 33 days of the antibiotics. I keep dreaming about clear skin, lol.
Big pimple on my left cheeck has dried up and flattened out. Using a spot of Murad's clarifying mask (with 4% sulfur) over night has helped it dry out a lot.
My face burns everyday and I feel like I've gotten darker? It's so tight and is starting to scale up. Not sure if I should use more of the clindamycin in dormer 211 cream I have, or to add my other face cream (Olay with spf 15 which is pretty good for my skin when it's dry). Maybe I will just start by using the Laura Mercier hydrating primer all over for a while, under makeup. I feel tight even when smiling, which stinks. Started my job today and I feel like I may not have made such a good impression (my job is fairly image-driven) because of the dry, scaly skin and makeup =(.
